    I glad the game is still being worked on and will definitely for sure come out one of these Thursdays though.

    I live in poverty, and have spent over $2000 on kickstarter games.

    I think I've played 1 hour of D:OS and 30 hours of Grim Dawn and that's it.

    I also spent $20,000 on strippers in 2001 and got off a whole 3 times.

    On the other hand, I'm not a felon and don't have to pay any child support .

    Does not make sense. If you were a felon you'd just steal the money.

    Infinitron It would be nice if the quotes from SA forums were [​IMG]'d with the names of who you're quoting* - I fear actually going to the site to figure it out.

    *Ideally with identifiers like "John Smith - Club Owner" or "Roxy Crenshaw - Proud Boys Spokesperson"

    I would play it just for the memes and art, even if the combat were as pointless as Dragon Warrior or those idle flash "games". If meaningless grind can work for a jRPG (you know, like the original Barkley lolz) then even shit combat mechanics can serve as filler for a D-list, but finished game. It would win lots of participation trophies! :desu:

    Although their suckiness clearly wasn't intended, I enjoyed seeing enemies like the Weresnails and Kobolds. Not every enemy has to be an exciting new challenge and a lack of activity can be an interesting surprise sometimes. An enemy that just kinda turns its back and shuffles away from you? Frickin hilarious ... and can even synergize provocatively with other enemies; cf. Binding of Isaac.

    i was expecting barkely 2 to just be barkley 1 with original assets, no idea why they felt the need to stuff it with mechanics. if they wanted open world, they could have just done a SaGa copy-cat.

    It still might come out, guys. Once the egotistical original team finishes the groundwork and moves on, Indian H1B coders can be brought in to fill in the details without any drama. Proven model. It worked for Duke Nukem Forever!

    they already kinda had that with a basic RPG system. I would have liked to see something SaGa-like with FFV job system or something.

    It's not like challenging combat was the reason anyone liked Barkley 1. Not that I fault them for wanting to make a game that was actually good, but failing that shouldn't really have stopped them.

    Lolwut, from memory even Wizardry 8 only had 6 kinds of elemental resistances, what a shitshow.

    Honestly, my car broke down and I started dumpster diving for food. I got Blackmoor 2 on my phone though. A great game. My life is also great. I'm so thankful every day that I can breath air and post here. I have it good.

    That's very interesting and all but... Where's my money? I want it back.

    Didn't Kickstarter have a policy to make refunds if the project failed?
